Philadelphia, PA - Operation Tiger Sweep - Point Breeze - Spring 2019

100+ Clemson University students to link-up with 10+ community civic organizations to clean-up hundreds of bags of household trash and illegally-dumped construction materials in one of Philadelphia's most historically under-served communities.

Each day, the volunteer force will meet at Wharton Square Park and break-up into small task groups to then tackle projects like the South 25th Street Corridor, cleaning and greening along Point Breeze Avenue, planting flowers in Wharton Square Park, painting inside the Wharton Square Park Rec Center, unclogging street stormwater grates, and a spring clean-up in and around Ralph Brooks Park.  If unable to attend, but would like to donate supplies, we are in need of bulk trash bags, gloves, paint supplies, brooms, and trash grabbers. Please contact northeast@travismanion.org.
